My Yard Live (MYL) is the new North County experiential community gathering space bringing together family-style sharable food, innovative libations, a brewery, live entertainment, leisure games and activities for people of all ages to enjoy.
The brainchild of local business owners Mark McLarry and Jamie Minotti, who together bring over three decades of experience in the entertainment industry, My Yard Live is an impressive 17,507 square foot indoor and outdoor space boasts a variety of activities for both kids and kids at heart. The interior includes a 220-person dining room, a space for entertainment, arcade games, air hockey, ping-pong and more. An island-style bar runs from the interior to the adult patio. The outdoor space features two distinct areas, including one that caters to adults with stand-up shuffleboard, bocce ball, fire pits, and a space for live entertainment performances. The second patio is geared towards families and includes playground elements, a tree house, climbing structures and picnic tables.
Leading the beer program is Head Brewer Benjamin “Shaggy” Blaney. My Yard Live is now open with an array of beer styles that cater to everyone’s pallet, including West Coast IPAs, Amber, American Brown Ale, Dry Irish Stout, and a Belgian Dubbel. Being a music venue with a large outdoor space, MYL will also offer a variety of light drinking beers ideal for enjoying in warm SoCal weather, including Saisons, Pilsners, and Blondes. A few to be on the lookout for include:
- “Lawn Darts” – a West Coast IIPA brewed with Nelson(NZ), Motueka(NZ), Cascade(US), and Citra(US)
- “San Diego Steel Toes” – a West Coast IPA (a collab with Chula Vista Brewing)
- “Red Rover” – an Amber Ale which is also used in many of the BBQ sauces created from scratch by Chef David Chanelle.
The intentionally familiar, yet contemporary cuisine pairs perfecting with the beer selection at MYL. Brought to life by Culinary Manager Chef David Chenelle, the menu will feature elevated backyard fare reimagined for modern diners. Influenced by what you’d expect to find at a friend’s backyard gathering, My Yard Live features fresh, locally-farmed ingredients, eclectic food options and the freedom to create a unique family-style meal based on shared likes and individual preferences. Look for smoked brisket by the pound, St. Louise Rib platters, BBQ Jackfruit Salad, whole Bahamian style red snapper and whole “Beer Can” chicken. Compliment your meal with roasted seasonal veggies, corn on the cob, Peruvian canary beans, coleslaw or mac n’ cheese. Be sure to save room for dessert! Old fashioned banana splits and strawberry shortcake are sure to be a crowd pleasers.
My Yard Live is located at 288 Rancheros Drive, San Marcos, CA 92069 and is now open!
